Not saying he was a great 2nd center, hes just a terrible shutdown center. No coach ever thinks oh God Laich is on get our first line off the ice.
He's actually considered a faceoff specialist of sorts.

He never sticks at center because he's terrible at it positionally.

Edit:

Laich has taken 40% more faceoffs than anyone else on the team this year.

But still doesn't play center.
